Close sources on Monday revealed that Kisii Governor and Kisii County Speaker met 30 MCAs from Kisii ahead of the speaker’s heated impeachment motion.

The sources confirmed that the team met at Asumbi in efforts to organize a team to water down the motion scheduled to be tabled Today at the Assembly.

The impeachment motion against Kombo was ignited and gained momentum at the burial of Kiamokama Ward MCA Kennedy Mainya whose health insurance funds could not be traced.

In the burial attended by Governor James Ongwae and other leaders, the angry MCAs accused the speaker of embezzling Mainya’s funds amounting to 6 Million.

At Asumbi, a section of MCAs differed with Governor’s plea requesting protection to vote in favor of the speaker.

Reports further say, they told Governor to stop sabotaging their independent work as the assembly.

They alleged that for the past 8 years they have done nothing in their respective wards due to lack of goodwill from the administration.

Maangi allied MCAs told him to cease from connecting the Deputy Governor to Kombo’s Impeachment.

An MCA who requested anonymity told this site that a number of MCAs in attendance spent their Monday night at Rongo to avoid contamination.

“We were 30 of them. The ground is hot and tough. We told the Governor to give us space and work for the people. Its time for sanity to prevail. He should stop supporting Matiang’i during the day but supports Tangatanga at Night. Kombo must go,” He said.

Another team pushing for Kombo’s removal is said to have too met at waterbuck resort in Gesonso to plot final touches ahead of the grand ouster.

The historic awaited impeachment motion against Kombo is expected to be tabled at the Assembly today.
